Attorney General Alan Wilson announces another victory for SCE&G ratepayers

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announces that the rate decrease for SCE&G customers passed by the state legislature will now continue. Today, the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals denied SCE&G’s motion to stop the rate decrease while a court battle over it continues. The Court also denied SCE&G’s request to speed-up that lawsuit, denied the company’s request to dismiss it, and allowed Attorney General Wilson to file friend-of-the-court briefs in the case.

“This is another big win for SCE&G ratepayers,” Attorney General Wilson said. “We’ve argued that customers should not have to pay billions of dollars for a hole in the ground. The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals recognized that it would be inappropriate to halt the General Assembly’s reduction of customers’ rates.”

Attorney General Wilson urges Congress to reauthorize Violence Against Women Act

(COLUMBIA, S.C.) – Attorney General Alan Wilson today joined 55 other state and territory attorneys general to urge Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

The attorneys general sent a letter earlier today to congressional leaders and the chairs of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, urging lawmakers to vote to reauthorize VAWA before it expires this year.

“The Violence Against Women Act has been a tremendous help to those of us who are working to reduce domestic violence and sexual assault in South Carolina,” Attorney General Wilson said. “We just announced millions in grants going to groups around the state that are helping victims and that vital work needs to continue.”

Under VAWA, originally passed in 1994, over $6 billion in grant funding has been awarded to government and nonprofit organizations nationwide. The grants have funded training and assistance to address and reduce domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. The grants have also funded resources and services to assist survivors, prosecute offenders and facilitate partnerships between prosecutors, judges, advocates, community organizations and health care providers.

In their letter, the attorneys general emphasized the importance of VAWA to reducing the rate of sexual violence toward women and addressing the devastating effects of these crimes. They urged Congress to continue funding for programs that have helped millions of domestic violence and sexual assault survivors.
